We are dedicated to enriching the cultural and intellectual lives of all children in Ghana. We achieve this by supporting creative work which benefits children and ensuring that it has the widest possible impact.

Mmofra Foundation develops programs, products and inspiring environments outside the classroom to benefit of children living in Ghana and Africa who are depending on such experiences to become capable and creative change makers for a better world.

The Big Picture

If it’s about thought, creativity, design and action which expands the cultural and intellectual development of children in Ghana, we pay attention!

Our encouragement may take the form of providing inspiration, physical creative space, direct interaction with children, collaboration, information, advocacy and hands-on involvement in developing models or incubating new ideas.

What we do

We seek out and work with people who excel in a wide range of creative fields through which children in Ghana can grow culturally and intellectually.  From our premises, we bring our creative partners into contact with children from all backgrounds.

  • We provide enabling environments for child-centered research and creativity.
  • We conceptualize and develop books, audio-visuals, art exhibitions, literacy initiatives, theater arts programs, and creative messaging for social/health initiatives.
  • We incubate projects which benefit children and share our successes.
  • We monitor cultural trends affecting children, including new technology and media.
  • We maintain an extensive network of resources in culture and education in Ghana.
  • We provide consultancy services in culture, education, literacy and creative content for children generally.
